The four films, which will be shown in Spanish with English subtitles, are:
June 30, 2022 / 6:00pm - El ángel exterminador (The Exterminating Angel)
- Directed by Luis Buñuel A supernatural surrealist film that follows a group of wealthy guests who find themselves unable to leave after a lavish dinner party and the chaos that ensues afterward. Sharply satirical and allegorical, the film is a commentary that suggests the aristocracy harbor savage instincts and unspeakable secrets. (1962) | Not Rated | 1 hour 35 minutes
July 28, / 6:00pm -Y Tu Mamá También
- Directed by Alfonso Cuarón The lives of Julio and Tenoch are ruled by raging hormones, intense friendships and a headlong rush into adulthood. Over the course of a summer, the two best friends live out a carefree cross-country escapade with a gorgeous older woman, while also finding a connection with themselves, each other and the world around them.(2001) | Rated R | 1 hour 46 minutes
August 25, 2022 / 6:00pm - La Camarista (The Chambermaid)
- Directed by Lila Avilés A look at the working environment of a chambermaid, Eve, who attempts to find her place in the world in one of Mexico City's most luxurious hotels. Expected by guests to remain anonymous, Eve quietly observes their lives as she struggles to also care for her four-year-old son and attend adult education classes.(2018) | Rated PG-13 | 1 hour 42 minutes
September 29, 2022 / 6:00pm - 499
- Directed by Rodrigo Reyes Upon the 500-year anniversary of the Spanish Conquest, a ghostly Conquistador arrives in modern Mexico. He journeys toward the capital along the epic route of Spanish Conquistador Hernán Cortés, from the coast of Veracruz to the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, now Mexico City. Through his gaze, events from the past are remembered alongside the testimonies of real people who are the survivors of contemporary violence, the failed war on drugs, and the victims of the current humanitarian crisis in the country. History and the present begin to merge, giving a nightmarish reflection on the enduring legacy of colonialism in our world today.(2020) | Not Rated | 1 hour 27 minutes
